Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

Welcome to the mountains!

Kick off your snow boots and settle in for a relaxing stay in the Mountain Jewel, our cozy one-bedroom cabin perfectly located near both slopes and the golf course in Big Bear. Combining classic Americana spirit and modern amenities, the Mountain Jewel has comforts any traveler can appreciate (hello, down comforter, K-Cup coffee, free WiFi, and cable TV!).

Immaculate, Updated Cabin with Nostalgic Americana

A stay in the mountains is good for the soul! As an adult, I wanted to continue the legacy of childhood trips to our family cabin - purchased in 1939 for just 50 cents - with snowy vistas and towering pines, days spent hitting the slopes, and good times with good company. When I saw this cabin in Big Bear, untouched since the 1950s/60s and complete with big game trophies on the walls, I knew it was The One. It was a "diamond in the rough," for sure, but after a full architect-led remodel in 2012, we ended up with exactly the right feel and spirit we wanted, combining the nostalgia of a family cabin with modern upgrades and comforts for guests.

Sink back onto a comfy couch after a day on the slopes. There’s also a modern, fully equipped kitchen any gourmet would be happy to sauté in. There's also a propane BBQ on a small deck for warm evenings.

A devoted entry for outdoor gear keeps things neat. The bedroom with comfy queen bed and hardwood-and-tile bathroom with a tub and shower offer true indulgence for a couple's getaway (there is also a single fold-out bed for one more guest).

Walk to Ski Slopes and Golf Course

Walk to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain Ski Resort (a half-mile away), with a bus stop just two blocks from the house! Also close by, enjoy the breathtaking vistas at the San Bernardino National Forest or tee up at the golf course. Both are just a few blocks away.

The Mountain Jewel is a few miles from the village, far enough off the beaten path to give you a true sense of wilderness and quiet, where clear, starry nights encourage you to cozy up on the couch with a glass of wine.

Our wooded neighborhood is also near a few restaurants, and convenient to all the outdoor activities your adventurer’s heart desires: hiking, zip-lining, birding, mountain biking (with lift access), the Big Bear Alpine Zoo, fishing, and lots more.

Talk to us for other activity recommendations!

Whether you’re here for adventure, relaxation, or to reminisce on your own treasured family vacations – with days spent watching the snow glint off the mountains, and nights spent gathered over stories and mugs of hot cocoa – this is just the place.

About Lisa

Growing up in Rockies I have a great love for the out doors. California seems to have everything from beautiful beach to wonderful mountains. My favorite thing about California mountains are the redwoods. I feel at home in the forest.

Lisa purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lisa chose Big Bear Lake

This area is full of towering trees and cute cozy cabins. I have owned a place in the area since 1997. I love getting away from the city to enjoy the outdoors. The slops are near by, the national forest is only 2 blocks away surrounded by the forest and the stars at night.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is really a jewel, quit cozy and everything you need to be comfortable. Close to booth ski slopes, ski shuttle 2 blocks from house.

Sweet Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate our anniversary. What a gorgeous cabin with all of the amenities. The decor is beautiful, the bed comfy and it's close to the village. There's just nothing like waking up to sit out on the deck and breathe in that fresh mountain air. Beautiful place- we plan to come back throughout the year- to escape the concrete jungle of LA and to just "breathe". Thank you for a lovely time!

Cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3rd Anniversary here with our 5 week old baby! It was a super cute and clean house. Our only suggestion would be that we would have enjoyed more outdoor seating. Overall it was a great stay!

Pre 40th birthday weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Good morning Lisa,

Damon and I wanted to say thank you for your cute and cozy place this weekend, we had a wonderful time! Your location was key to all the activities we did and the neighborhood was very quiet!

We definitely intend on renting your place again soon. We have season passes for snow summit to mountain bike so I'm sure it wont be long before we return.

Have a delightful week!

Beautiful Cabin Minutes from the Slopes

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at the Mountain Jewel for the weekend and we absolutely loved this place! The cabin is nicely decorated and updated. I was so pleased that all of the linens smelled freshly laundered. The cabin has everything you need as far as kitchen items. We chose to walk to the Big Bear Resort...I would not recommend it. Take the shuttle which is just two blocks from the cabin.
